Just 5 days after the Edmonton Elks defeated the Calgary Stampeders 32-20 in the annual Labor Day rivalry game, they will run things back again on Saturday of Week 6. The win on Monday was a significant one for Elks quarterback Trevor Harris, who had a career regular-season record of 0-9-2 against Calgary. He also lost to the Stamps in the 2018 Grey Cup while a member of the Redblacks.
The Calgary Stampeders are off to a rough start so far this season. A second consecutive loss to Edmonton would see their record drop to 1-5. This would put the Stamps at great risk of having their first losing season in 14 years. The last time Calgary finished the season with a below .500 record was in 2007. They followed that season up by winning the Grey Cup in 2008.
Calgary looks like they’ll have Bo Levi Mitchell back for this one. Reports are he was taking starters reps at practice on Thursday. He has been out since suffering a broken leg in week 2 against Toronto. The 2x CFL Most Outstanding player is listed as the starting quarterback for Saturday’s clash with the Stamps rivals from Edmonton, marking a return from a broken fibula in just 4 weeks.
The Stamps went 1-2 with rookie Jake Maier at the helm. Maier set some records in his 3 games with the Stamps too. He’s the first person in league history to throw for more than 300 yards in each of his 3 first starts. He’ll be back on the bench for this one, however.
The Edmonton Elks are 2-2 since being renamed after the largest member of the deer family. They’ll be looking to make it two wins in 5 days over their rivals from Calgary on Saturday. To that end, the Elks might be looking for more help from rooking receiver Earnest Edwards. In his first CFL game on Monday, Edwards scored a touchdown on Edmonton’s first drive. He would finish the game with 3 receptions for 56 yards.
Elks quarterback Trevor Harris earned the top performer of the week nod for his Week 5 performance against the Stamps. He completed 31 of 41 attempts to 7 different receivers for 398 yards and 4 touchdowns. The 2x Grey Cup winner got a measure of revenge against Calgary on Monday. It was the first time in his career Harris had beaten the Stamps, including in the 2018 Grey Cup with Ottawa.

4* Free CFL Betting Prediction: Calgary +100
CFL Betting Prediction: Having Bo Levi Mitchell back in the lineup is big for the Stamps, even considering how good rookie Jake Maier was in replacement. I like them on the moneyline here. Mitchell is a guy who knows how to win and his 2 Grey Cup MVP awards (2014 & 2018) are proof of this.
As good as Maier has been, Mitchell is at an elite level in this league. Only being 4 weeks removed from a broken fibula sounds somewhat concerning, however. The Stamps would be in a giant hole at 1-5 so I’m expecting them, and Mitchell, to find a way to win this one on Saturday.
